It's Saturday for Everyone!

Did you spend your day off wisely? I sure hope so! Remember, you only get 2 a week! I vaguely remember what that's like--kind of miserable with a touch of false hopefulness, right? Like it's Thursday at 3pm and you can just taste the weekend.  "One more day!" you think to yourself with a forced smile. Then, Friday rolls along and someone at the office says, "T.G.I.F" and you pause to see if they're being sarcastic or ironic. But nope, they mean it full heartedly. They honestly mean it to the core of their being--Thank GOD It's Friday. They're not sure they'd be able to take one more day of staring at their coworkers through cubicle glass, scanning emails from their under-qualified supervisors, and trying to find which string cheese is theirs in the packed office refrigerator.

When Friday afternoon finally arrives, and computers are being shut down and bags are being packed up, there's a sense of camaraderie among you all. "We made it!" Your eyes seem to say to each other. Someone inevitably high fives you on your walk out the door, and as you turn your car engine on, the radio starts playing, "Everybody's Working For the Weekend." You start singing along, and it's not until about 30 seconds into the song you realize just how sad your situation is, am I right?

Soooo yeah, hope you spent your Saturday wisely. I know I sure did!
